review: nars velvet lip glides

October 1, 2016

NARS Velvet Lip Glides officially launch today, and I couldn’t be more excited about it! I was generously gifted some as PR samples a while ago and every time I’ve worn them out (especially Unspeakable, which I wore in this post) people ask about it and I’d end up feeling like such a jerk for talking up something that wasn’t yet available. But today is the day, you guys! I can finally point people in the direction of the nearest NARS counter and send them on their way.

I actually put up swatches of the full line a couple months ago, but here’s a re-post as well as some better quality close-ups and lip swatches of the colours I have.

For everyone who’s asked if the Velvet Lip Glides are glosses or liquid lipsticks, they are kind of a hybrid. Think of them as pigmented, semi-opaque, non-sticky glosses. They are less pigmented and more glossy than the limited edition Lip Covers that were released in the summer, and don’t dry down or set at all. You can blot the darker colours into a satin stain, which I sometimes do for a softer look.

I think I’d like to add Bound and No.54 to my collection – what colours are you eyeing up?
